Add New Hygienist


Hygienists do not have provider numbers and invoices must be attached to a Provider. If the Hygienist is working with several Providers they must be added as a separate Hygienists for reporting purposes. 

First setup an Appointment Book and if operating under their own ABN, setup the ABN and bank account first. 

  1. Click the navigation menu > Management > Providers page


    Operations toolbar > New record or click the Add icon

  3. Read these important instructions and click OK button to proceed


  4. Fill in the details of the hygienist, the following details are required for accurate record-keeping, reporting and claiming

    1. Title

    2. Surname

    3. First Name

    4. Provider Number (of the Dentist working alongside)

    5. GST Number

    6. Merchant ID (ePayments and claims)

    7. Prescriber No (for electronic prescriptions only)

    8. Fee Level (only if working with Provider-based Fees)

    9. Appointment Book

    10. Commission (only if to be calculated on reports)

    11. Position: Hygienist

After adding a Hygienist, setup the Bank Redirections 

Repeat the steps if the Hygienist will work alongside another Dentist and add that Dentists' Provider ID to the new file. In this case, change the Code to represent who the Hygienist is working with, e.g. HCY - Hygienist with Dr Cameron Yates
